THE GAMUT IN VERSE.

Said Ann to her sister Maria, one day,

If you wish it, my dear, I will teach you
to play;

I’ll hear you your notes each day, if you’re
good,

And make them quite easy to be understood.

But first you’ll observe, what is clear to
be seen.

Those five straight black lines, and four
spaces between, (1)

11

Of the Alphabet next, seven letters you
see,

The names of the notes, from A unto G.
And now we’ll begin with first reading the
Bass,

From G, on the first line; and A, the first
space, ( 2 )

The second Jine next, pray take notice,
is B;

The space called the second, which follows,
is C;

Which brings you to D, which is on the
third line.

With E, the third space, pray remember
next time;

16

Then comes F, on the fourth line, and G,
the fourth space;

If attention you pay, you’ll get on apace,
And soon all the notes you will quite rightly
call.

Up to A, the fifth line, and last of them
all.

19

And here ends the Bass, which at present
you’ll learn,

And we’ll afterwards take the Treble in
turn. (3)

Here the first line is E, and F, the first

space,

And G, on the second line, next takes a
place.

22

With F, on the fifth line; so do not forget
This lesson of lines and of spaces I’ve set,
Which when you’ve repeated as well as
you’re able^

We’ll pass to the next rule, they call the

Time-table.

Those notes which above and below you
discover,

Are called Ledger lines, both higher and
lower; (4)

But at present you’ll have no occasion to
learn ’em.

When you have, I’ve no doubt, you will
quickly discern ’em.

LEDGER LINES.

There’s the Semibreve, longest and slowest
of all, (5)

Which is equal to those two, which Minims
we call, (6)

And four Crotchets here are presented to
view, (7)

To equal in value those last Minims two.

Then the eight Quavers next, which here
you may see, (8)

Will with those four Crotchets exactly
agree.

And of Semiquavers sixteen in number are
wanted, (9)

To equal those Quavers, which last you have
counted j

35

Then of Deniisemiqavers, thirty-two in
aline, (10)

With the ten and six Semiquavers make
even time.

Now, my dear, when this table you quite
understand.

You may venture to take some new music
in hand.

And knowing so well your ambition to play,

I will give you a pretty new lesson one day.
